Poetry Slam! 2012 video of the week: Raymond Education Campus


NOTE: Each week, we are featuring a school's performance from the 15th Annual DC SCORES Poetry Slam!, the largest youth slam in the District! During the two-night culminating event of the fall season -- held Nov. 28 at Columbia Heights Education Campus and Nov. 29 at H.D. Woodson High School -- 35 schools had the opportunity to perform original group and solo poems and songs in front of their peers, families and community members. At the end of each night, teams were called back up on stage to receive trophies.

We hope you enjoy this glimpse into the self-expression DC SCORES instills in youth. 

On the first night of the Poetry Slam! at Columbia Heights Education Campus, Raymond Education Campus performed three poems describing the students' diverse backgrounds and the communities they live in. 

The most powerful line -- "Even though we're from different countries, we stand united" -- encapsulated a performance that demonstrated the teamwork that is built during the DC SCORES season.
